There are several options available today for replacing missing teeth. Dental bridges and dentures have been the most popular choices for years. But today, patients can choose to have dental implants placed as a permanent solution for missing teeth. Dr. Kishore is an experienced dental implant dentist in Winchester that can help you restore your smile to it’s natural beauty without having to worry about missing teeth.
Dental implants are restorations that can completely replace missing teeth with an abutment that looks completely identical to your natural teeth. The implant is made of two parts:
We begin by placing the implant. We will wait approximately 3-6 months for your jawbone to heal and form around the implant. A temporary crown will be placed on the implant during this time so that you can eat and speak normally. After the jawbone has healed, we will create a custom fabricated tooth to place over the implant to replace the missing tooth.
Dental implants function just like your natural teeth. You can eat, drink, brush, and floss just as you normally would. Since the abutment will look just like your other teeth, nobody will know that you have a missing tooth. There is little to no special care that has to be given in order to maintain your implant, which is why more and more patients are opting for this restoration option over alternatives.
If you have a missing tooth or teeth, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Kishore to see if you are a candidate for dental implants. Call us today at 590-773-3282 to schedule your appointment.
